EDGECOMBE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA 3 TARBORO Tarboro is one of the most attractive towns in the South, socially and physically. Every convenience of our complex civilization has been provided within the environs of Tarboro. Excellent schools, a wonderful park shaded by century-old trees, well-lighted and paved streets, municipally-owned and operated electric light plant, fire department and apparatus, and a pasteurizing plant, assuring "milk fit for babies." The banks of Tarboro are exceptionally strong, and take an intelligent interest in the upbuilding of the town. There are twenty-five lumber mills in the surrounding country, fine cotton and oil mills, three cotton mills and three knitting mills, two guano factories and two buggy fac- tories. Tarboro has good transportation facilities, and has water transporta- tion also by means of Tar River. The building of good roads has made great progress of late, and no country has better roads in the eastern portion of the State. The climate is mild and the growing season long. Cattle, hogs, sheep, corn, oats, cow peas, Irish potatoes, tobacco, wheat, melons, apples and fruits of every kind grown in the South are grown here. Write the Chamber of Commerce for information.

Lines of railroad run out in all four directions, the service, both freight and passenger, is satisfactory and convenient. It is no idle boast to say it is truly a "railroad center." It is a terminal of six railroad lines. The main resources of Rocky Mount are naturally of agriculture. The city is situated in the very best farming section of North Carolina. Everything that is raised anywhere in the South is raised here. The great shops of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad are located here and give employment to over 3,000 men. Rocky Mount has five tobacco factories, two cotton-seed oil and fer- tilizer factories, a large spindle cotton mill (the second oldest in the State), a hosiery mill, several lumber and wood- working factories, two ice factories with capacity 140 tons per day. There are more enterprises than can be mentioned in the small space allowed to us. Rocky Barnes, Osmon CH Barnes, Tom H Barnes, Jane Bell H Battle, Jason C H Hattie C Martha C Battle, E.
